Coach Scott Satterfield addresses penalties

The Louisville football team spent part of their Sunday run.

It’s one of the consequences Cardinals head coach Scott Satterfield imagined for the team that racked up more yards on penalties (81) than any fumble in receiving yards against Florida State. last Friday night. Ahmari Huggins-Bruce led the unit with 61 yards on three catches.

The team’s 11 penalties in the 35-31 loss to Florida State bring it to 30 on the year, tied for 125e in the country with Cincinnati. Only four teams have racked up more penalties: winless Georgia State and undefeated Maryland (31 each), 1-3 Charlotte (32) and 1-2 Houston (33).

The Cardinals take an average of 10 penalties per game, or 126e nationally, for a total of 229 penalty yards (110e) and averaged 76.3 yards per outing (116e). If U of L is to turn its season around, it will partly have to eliminate those mistakes, starting against South Florida in the Week 4 game at noon on Saturday.
